MiniBar Hollywood

6141 Franklin Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90068
You know those episodes of Mad Men where they travel to California and hang out in swank, smoke-filled hotel bars? That’s pretty much what it feels like to drink at MiniBar (sans the smoke). Attached to the Hollywood Best Western that also houses the 101 Coffee Shop, MiniBar is the refined yet understated drinking den every city needs. The vibe is mellow, soulful oldies are the soundtrack, and cocktails such as an improved gin martini or scotch with aged rum and amaretto are as stunning as they are straightforward. -GS
